Hummingbirds

Batman Says:

Hummingbirds, cool little creatures that buzz around almost always unnoticed by us clumsy humans. Beautifully colored feathers, wings beating 900 bazillion miles per hour (don’t go there, they beat really fast). One of those funny little birds that does it’s job (pollinating) without a care what we think.

I, for one, think this is an excellent attitude to have. Imagine if more people were focusing their attention on what they were doing, instead of worrying about what everyone else was doing. I mean think about it, if we are honest with ourselves, we would realize that we probably are worrying about other people’s job performance, their personal lives, how they dress, or their opinions, about 90% of the time. It bothers us how others do things, don’t do things, say things or not, voice their opinions or not, when instead, we would be more productive and be happier if we only worried about ourselves. I’m not talking isolationism, I’m talking about paying attention to your wants and needs, instead of being upset that “Bob or Susan” got a raise or promotion when they “never do anything”. Focus on you, the right people will know who does what eventually, and if not, I bet you will still be happier, concerning yourself with your stuff, instead of others.

Be like the hummingbird, eat drink and be happy just being you.

Yes Peach I know I need to refill the bird feeders…”

Pretty Days

Batman Says:

Peach and I have taken lots of photographs over the past few years, and it has got me thinking about what defines a “pretty day”.

To me, every day that comes around, be it sunny and bright, rainy and gray, blinding snow, hurricane blown wind and rain, all have a pretty aspect. The are all something God allowed to form for one of his purposes.

Peach and I have captured a few of what we call pretty days on camera and I’d like to share a few here with you. Some you may have seen before others maybe not, all are special to us as it is time spent together photographing God’s creations, enjoy and please comment if you like or dislike, it’s how we learn.

God paints the pictures, Peach & I do our best to capture them to share.

Each day we are blessed to be a part of, be it stormy weather or clear skies, leaves an indelible mark on each of us, savor the moments you have, stop and look around, dance in the rain, the days are created for us to use, don’t waste them with “we’ll see, or I can do it later, or It’s too hot, it’s too cold”. Do what you can to enjoy the moments, and reflect upon those gone on ahead who are waiting for us.

“Pretty Days” to us is more a state of mind than an actual kind of day, hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoy taking them and sharing them.

Y’all get outside and breath the clean air would ya…

“I’m comin Peach, hold your horses..”

Opinions 

Batman says:

Most people comment or post blogs (I believe) to express an opinion, or to give some type of information (good, bad, useful ect) that they feel others might like, want, or need. There are those that are trying to make money at it, but I think the others are the majority. They then wait and see others reactions.

My pretty girl “Peach” for example, with the calming ways, bible and religious knowledge, and the Grace she shows, could blog and make money without doubt. Peach isn’t like that, she shares verses, inspirational stuff, and anything to help anyone find God and find their way, she does this without asking for anything, just the type person she is. I read the “opinions” posted to her blogs and I’m not amazed to see how many people she reaches. Our little blog thing here is fairly new, not large on followers, but I’m sure with her posting it will grow crazily.

And now to me (squeamish, prudish, anti-fun, anti-hunters may as well stop reading right now) the goofball of this 30+ (going stronger daily) relationship. I’m more scatterbrained about this blog stuff. I just blurt out random things that honestly I’m amazed that anyone reads (you have to Peach, it’s in the contract). I am an outdoorsman, I trap, I hunt I fish I photograph, and I do it all with Peach. She has always been a part of everything I do, willingly too! and enjoys my silliness as much as I do. I find being out in Gods wilds one of the most relaxing and peaceful things one can do. Take trapping for instance, you find a place that looks like it has the type animal your looking for, you scout it, set up some cameras maybe, then you set your trap trying to fool wiley creatures. Trapping has been around forever, and to me it is fun and relaxing, alleviating stress and worries all the while enjoying being outdoors in Gods creation.


Here comes  the opinions, I’m sure, everyone has a few, and we all give them freely without being asked most times. This is the price we pay for blogging, and it’s ok. If you don’t like my posts that’s ok, if you don’t like me because I hunt, trap, fish,etc that’s ok. The world is full of different types of people, in my full time job I see most at their worst, some at their best and others in between. I have learned not to judge (Gods privilege, not mine) anyone based on appearance, likes, dislikes, hobbies, etc. Here in blog land (small island overcrowded with people) if I give a comment to a post it’s not hateful, judgemental, or condescending (at least I try not to be, we are human and all have faults). It’s not my place to convince someone with a difference of opinion who is right. Funny thing is, it’s not anyone’s place, blogging, with the exception of the money making ones, are, I think, just supposed to be sharing stuff, maybe I’m to old fashioned.


Anyways I posted this to let you have a peek at what batman does when not at his full time job, he spends it with Peach, outdoors as much as possible, admiring Gods handiwork.

Y’all tag along if ya want, should be a fun ride (at the least you can laugh at my goof ups).

Have a great day everyone

God bless ya
